The folks at Mercury Computer Systems, a leading provider of high-performance, embedded computing solutions for image, sensor, and signal processing applications, have announced the availability of their initial offering of the new Echotek Series family of high-performance, Xilinx Virtex-5 FPGA-based digital receivers.
The new Echotek Series DCM-V5-XMC digital receiver features the latest in A/D and D/A technology, allowing for high-speed/high-resolution data conversion while still preserving the quality of the original signal. It implements either a Virtex-5 SX95T or LX155T FPGA, which can be programmed by the end user for customer-specific application features.
Each Virtex-5 FPGA is accompanied by both DDR-II-SDRAM and QDR-II-SRAM memory chips; the memory is available for buffering input data streams and for supporting computationally intense applications. This set of flexible resources delivers unique capabilities, such as multi-board coherency, making the new product especially well suited for beamforming and direction-finding, as required by many radar, signals intelligence, electronics intelligence, and communications applications.
The Echotek Series DCM-V5-XMC digital receiver is the first of a line of Virtex-5 based digital receivers that are planned for release by Mercury within the next calendar year.
